From the Pastor's desk



Attention: Indoor gatherings are now permitted under the current San Francisco County Public Health Order with all safety protocol observed. For this reason, all churches in San Francisco have been asked to resume public Masses indoors. Masses will still be available via livestream, so please plan to virtually join the celebration of the Mass if you can’t be present for some health concerns. For proper safety preparation, our weekend masses begin in the weekend of October 10th, 2020 with the following schedule:

Saturday, October 10th at 5.00pm

Sunday, October 11th at 8:30 am (Spanish mass)

Sunday October 11th at 10:45am (English mass)

If you attend, please make sure you follow the safety protocols: wear a face covering and keep six feet apart from others. It is wonderful to have you back in Church. Thank you for all you do for the Parish.
